naina devi

pauraanik katha ke anusaar daksh prajaapati ki putri uma ka vivaah Shiv se hua tha. Shiv ko daksh prajaapati pasand naheen karte the, parantu vah devataaon ke aagrah ko taal naheen sakte the, isliye unhonne apni putri ka vivaah na chaahate hue bhi Shiv ke saath kar diya tha. ek baar daksh prajaapati ne sabhi devataaon ko apne yahaaain yagya mein bulaaya, parantu apne daamaad Shiv aur beti uma ko nimntran tak naheen diya. uma hath kar is yagya mein pahuainchi. jab usane haridvaar sthit kanaravan mein apne pita ke yagya mein sabhi devataaon ka sammaan aur apne pati aur apna niraadar hote hue dekha to vah atyant du:khi ho gayi. yagya ke havanakund mein yeh kehte hue kood padi ki 'main agale janm mein bhi Shiv ko hi apna pati banaaooaingi. aapne mera aur mere pati ka jo niraadar kiya iske pratifl - svarup yagya ke havan - kund mein swayam jalakar aapke yagya ko asafal karti hooain.' jab Shiv ko yeh gyaat hua ki uma sati ho gayi, to unke krodh ka paaraavaar na raha. unhonne apne ganon ke dvaara daksh prajaapati ke yagya ko nasht - bhrasht kar daala. sabhi devi - devata Shiv ke is raudr - rup ko dekhkar soch mein pad gaye ki Shiv pralaya na kar daalein. isliye devi - devataaon ne mahaadev Shiv se praarthana ki aur unke krodh ke shaant kiya. daksh prajaapati ne bhi kshama maaaingi. Shiv ne unako bhi aasheervaad diya. parantu sati ke jale hue shareer ko dekhkar unka vairaagya umad pada. unhonne sati ke jale hue shareer ko kandhe par daalkar aakaash - bhraman karna shuru kar diya. aisi sthiti mein jahaaain - jahaaain par shareer ke ang kire, vahaaain - vahaaain par shakti peeth ho gaye. jahaaain par sati ke nayan gire the ; vaheen par nainaadevi ke rup mein uma arthaat nanda devi ka bhavya sthaan ho gaya. aaj ka naineetaal vahi sthaan hai, jahaaain par us devi ke nain gire the. nayanon ki ashrudhaar ne yahaaain par taal ka rup le liya. tabase nirntar yahaaain par shivpatni nanda (paarvati) ki pooja nainaadevi ke rup mein hoti hai.
